Coat Belt As A Scarf

Oh yes. It works.












Skinny scarves are everywhere, and I completely support this trend. It's the best way to cover your neck without overheating, and it looks great on everyone. I really think it gives the illusion of a longer neck as well. If you want that giraffe neck look, try twenty at once. Anyway, because I'm not exactly in a position to go spend fifty dollars on a skinny scarf, my coat belt is the next best thing. I can easily get away with this, and if your coat has a belt, you can too.

I honestly did not want this coat when I got it. I didn't even have a coat though, because I didn't see the point when I was in school, and then I lived in the desert. When I came back to Texas, I had to cave. I couldn't handle being out without one. However, my only option on such short notice (and for the style I wanted) was Target, and even then, I couldn't find a simple solid colored coat. This was the closest thing, and I hated it, but I needed it, and now it's one of my favorite possessions. It's versatile, and makes me feel powerful. There's a metaphor in there somewhere.

How's Tuesday treating you?

  1. Ah this is cool. I love matching accesories (maybe its the Blair Waldorf in me) so coat and scarf is pretty cool. Original style comes from original thinking

  2. Hah, that's an incredibly cool idea. I love it when people use clothing items for unintended purposes.

  3. what a cool idea...your photos are beautiful. also i like using thick or thin fabric ribbon of any color as a choker or neck tie (or head band), i often get complimented on it, simple, cheap and easy but has such a big impact! i find it's often these little touches that take an "outfit" and turn it into more of a "style" xo
